Job Description: An exciting opportunity has arisen for a talented Veterinary surgeon to join our new state-of-the-art hospital in Northamptonshire.
The hospital sits in the heart of Kettering, a historic market town in central England. As well as its historic heritage, Kettering is a popular destination, with a diverse and vibrant town centre, excellent sporting facilities, and a plethora of highly ranked schools. The hospital is less than an hour by train to London and Birmingham and has an abundance of country parks and spectacular countryside to explore on the doorstep.
They have 80+ people across their team, meaning that you’ll never be lacking someone to go to when things get tough. Especially with the highly supportive nursing team, many of whom have worked their way up from being an ACA/VCA/SVN and staying on/developing.

There are all the facilities you would expect from a modern hospital including CT, digital X-ray machine, endoscopy, laparoscopy kit, sterile theatre, piped gas, ultrasound, and excellent welfare facilities for the team. Initially set up in the 1960's the practice has grown to what is now 6 large branch surgeries plus a 24-hour hospital, which provides care for pets across Northamptonshire and South Leicestershire.
Or client is open to both hospital and branch applications. They can accommodate full or part time working and are open to discussing any hours. No OOHs are required as they have a dedicated night team who cover this.
